Give back, get lucky

Among the noteworthy parts of this article about budget-friendly date ideas: a suggestion to volunteer together.

The writer cautions that it might not work as a first date, but could make a good third date.


I'm not sure if I'd go that route so early in a relationship. Make no mistake: I fully support an effort to make the world a better place.

But you have to be careful with unconventional date ideas. Dinner and a movie is a romantic staple for a reason. It's safe. Even something as innocent as volunteering at an animal shelter can ignite tension if your date is scared of dogs.

What do you think? Would you volunteer with a date during the early stages of a relationship?
